When we set out to design a flat pedal, there were a few key features that we NEEDED! Replaceable pins, sealed bearings, chromoly spindles, symmetrical pedal body, channels to help shed mud, and a slight concave design that holds the foot in place while placing the pins in just right spots to evenly distribute the pin pressure onto your shoes. All this in only 180g per pedal. Coming with one free rebuild kit per year + a lifetime warranty. The mission was to craft a set of pedals that hit all the little performance details along with top-tier serviceability & durability.
Two main features we wanted to focus on was having the thinnest overall pedal body while retaining a flat pedal body with a concave pin design. The flat pedal body and concave pin design paired with having a symmetrical pedal body allow the foot to sit into the pedal with even pressure. The symmetrical pedal body is key so the leading and trailing edge of the pedal is an even distance from the pedal spindle. This helps keep your foot more balanced on the pedal for a planted feel. We also wanted a large enough platform to keep you stable while not too big that you lose pedal feel and start hitting it on rocks and trail terrain, so we landed on an overall platform of 105mm x 105mm. Each side of the pedal features 7 metal threaded pins with 2 molded pins on the inside, giving you 9 pins total to give you full grip.
At Trail One Components, we also believe in keeping your products feeling like new for as long as possible. Make your parts last longer while keeping more bike products out of the landfill. That is why we offer 1 free rebuild kit every year for the original owner of these pedals. That's right, 1 free rebuild kit per year.

We are on a mission to make phenomenal products that support the sport of mountain biking. For every pair of The Vortex Composite Pedals sold, we will donate $1 to Ocala Mountain Bike Association INC. in Ocala, Florida, USA. We exist to support the trails we love & the people that take care of them.
“Some say you can't have trails without mountains. The folks in Florida would beg to differ. The Vortex trail in Ocala, FL, is a wild ride with tough tech and tons of surprises. The Florida flatlanders have built something really special with the Vortex trail, and it fits right in with the Trail One Components vibe.”
